As I sit here, still at home, unable to attend the office, I realised that my last post to the website was on my last working day before the Christmas break. Now I appreciate that wishing people a Happy New Year on the 24th February 2021, may not be the done thing but, Happy New Year to all of our members, supporters, beneficiaries and followers.
We are now 55 days into the New Year and I think we can safely say that it hasn't been what we were hoping for but it hasn't come as a shock either. Therefore, I would like to try to deliver some good news because Cllr Cris Tomos has completed the fin...Read More
As we reach the end of what has been a tremendously difficult year for many of us, we at Asedion would very much like to take this opportunity to wish all of our members, followers, beneficiaries and professional contacts a very merry Christmas and a prosperous new year. We hope that 2021 brings back some level of normality to proceedings and we are very much looking forward to getting back out into local communities to see how we can further support you.
This year has seen the Asedion scheme grow, with more members joining and additional beneficiaries being supported. Total prize money given...Read More
On Wednesday 16th December 2020, the latest lottery draw was carried out for the Cronfa Asedion Cymunedol / Community Assets Fund. Once again two more people were going to win some money just in time for Christmas.
The first prize of £100.00 went to Stephanie Plackett of Cambridge and the £30.00 second prize went to Julie Davies of Hermon. Very well done to you both. We will be in touch with you shortly Stephanie so that we can give you your winnings and discuss the arrangements for acquiring a photo.
As always, thank you to everyone who continues to support the scheme and raise money for th...Read More
On Friday 13th November 2020 we carried out the next Asedion lottery draw for our October members. Myself and Cllr Cris Tomos were in the PLANED offices in Narberth and our helper for the draw was Ben who also works at PLANED.
The draw proved very lucky for Julie Davies of Pembroke Dock who took the first prize of £100.00. Julie happens to also work at PLANED and we were able to get her photo straight away. To say she was happy to have won, would be an understatement. We hope the money comes in handy Julie, especially with Christmas just around the corner!
Second prize went to Rhian White of...Read More
We decided it was time for a bit of a redesign for our promotional poster. It's a new design with all of the scheme benefits remaining the same. We would like to thank Karen Lewis, Communication Coordinator at PLANED for her work on this. Both an English and Welsh version have been designed.
If you would like to display one of our posters then please do feel free to get in touch and we will be happy to get one to you. Our email address is firstname.lastname@example.org or you can call the PLANED office on 01834 860965.
Wow, I can't believe that we are now in the last quarter of 2020, what a year it has been!
Asedion continues to support local good causes and charities as do all of our supporters. It was lovely to see some new faces winning the monthly lottery draw for September 2020. First prize of £100.00 went to Rhian White of Llangynin and the £30.00 second prize was won by Bill and Eirlys Davies of Llanfyrnach. Unfortunately we have been unable to take a picture of our lucky winner due to the ongoing pandemic restrictions but we will not forget Rhian!

Here is a quick glimpse at some of our winners to date in 2020. You can still join the scheme and win some money before Christmas. Remember currently the first cash prize is £100.00 and the second is £30.00. The more people who join, the more money avaiable to win. But more importantly than that, 50% of your donation will go to your nominated good cause. After the year we have had in 2020, I'm sure they would be extremely greatful of your donation.
All the best!Read More
What a strange six months many of us have experienced. Personally my lockdown experience has consisted of looking after my two children whilst my wife continued to work in the NHS - quite a challenge if I'm honest! But it wasn't all tantrums and tears as it did provide me with an opportunity to slow down and appreciate the things I have around me. Being put on the government furlough scheme meant that there was more time available to do those all important jobs around the house and enjoy the extra play time with my girls. We also adopted our second retired greyhound so time has bee...Read More
Good evening all.
I would firstly like to start by saying that things are certainly a bit different for everyone at the moment and it is imperative that we are all reducing our social contact and following the advice given to us by our government in order to stay fit and well. Stay at home wherever possible, only shop for necessities, don't panic buy, continue to talk to your friends, work colleagues and family members by electronic means and from a safe distance of at least 2 meters. We ALL need to be socially distancing ourselves and this WILL pass.
So moving onto other news, before we all...Read More
On Wednesday 11th March 2020 at Pembrokeshire College a fantastic event took place that really celebrated the power of community cohesion and how small groups of like minded individuals can come together to achieve great things. There is no questionning the togetherness of the Solva Community!
We had the pleasure of hearing from members of Solva Care, who are one of our beneficiaries, along with some inspirational monologues from a local farmer and fisherman. We heard some great poetry and were able to watch a video on all things Solva. They even fed us! The cawl was delicous.
